RE: pre-commit transaction modification - remove files

At the moment I do reject the entire commit, however, this is extreme.
Say a developer tries to commit 100+ files, carefully selecting these
files from a list of several other files. However, one of the files
selected is a rogue file and the entire commit is rejected because of
one file.

Don't modify an in-progress transaction, especially in the manner
you're describing. If you do so, the committer's working copy will
instantly be out of sync with the repository.
UNQUOTE
When you mention out of sync, does this mean that the working copy is
corrupted or is it out of sync similar to when the development is
actually being carried out. I was hoping that when the user is informed
with a list of rogue files that were not committed the first time, the
user can modify those files and re-commit them to the repository there
by syncing the working copy with the repository.

Don't modify an in-progress transaction, especially in the manner
you're describing. If you do so, the committer's working copy will
instantly be out of sync with the repository.

If you don't want certain files committed, check for them in the
pre-commit and just reject the whole commit with an error message
explaining why.
